The mission of the Mountain to Sound Chapter (MTS) of AACN is to represent, promote, and provide guidance for the practice and growth of critical care nursing. Additionally, the Chapter will strive, through education, to promote the health and well-being of those experiencing critical illness and/or injury across the life span. This mission is not only directed at the Chapter's members, but to all nurses practicing in critical care. The Chapter recognizes the face of critical care nursing is evolving and includes settings such as home care, telemetry units, and other specialty areas. As members of a larger community beyond critical care nursing, the Chapter will also seek to actively participate in community service activities.We hope to continue to build on our mission statement. We all have important values and ideas, things we care about and want to share. Sometimes we feel our ideas can even change the world, and we want to let other people know how they can join in and make all our lives better. Please continue to give us your feedback on how we can improve the Chapter.This site will present our organization's ideas to our members and potential new members. As communicating isn't always easy, we'll try to include photos and images that convey our message. We'll also include specific information about our organization and its members, so no one forgets the people behind the pictures. Like us on FACEBOOK (Mountain to Sound AACN) to get timely updates, pictures on educational and other activities! 

This organization is stronger, bolder and works together because of volunteers like you, so join us.
